Panthers’ defence shuts down hosts Rocky Mtn House

Stettler's Peewee Panthers continued their undefeated streak, forging an unbreakable wall and shutting down host Rocky Mountain House.

Stettler’s Peewee Panthers continued their undefeated streak, forging an unbreakable wall and shutting down host Rocky Mountain House on Saturday, Sept. 26, coming home with a win of 48-0.

According to head coach Ernie Shirreff, perennial scorer David Butterwick brought home most of the team’s points, scoring multiple touchdowns. The 48-point win was augmented by touchdowns by Carson Mottus, and a single touchdown by Jacob Cottam.

The team performed “much crisper” this week, Shirreff said, something that pleased him greatly. Though the team won against the visiting Drumheller Terrapins the weekend before, Shirreff “wasn’t happy. It was sloppy.”

This week, the Panthers’ defensive line kept the Rocky Mountain House team from gaining ground.

“They had only one decent play,” Shirreff said. “We just shut them down all day.”

Offensively, the team showed great improvement, playing “much smoother,” Shirreff said. Now, the team will be focusing on continuing to improve through practices as the next three games will really show what the team is made of.

This coming Saturday, Oct. 2, the Panthers head to Strathmore. The following weekend, another away-game sees the Panthers take on league champion and also undefeated team Sylvan Lake.

On Oct. 24 at 11 a.m., the Panthers will play on home turf, taking on Lacombe, another strong team in the league.

“We’re just trying to improve week-to-week, which is what any coach hopes for and wants to see,” Shirreff said.
